So been dying to go back to Tanuki for a while now. We went about a year ago for dinner and it was fantastic! And kept saying. Let’s do happy hour. But we are never avail during that time! Last night we went for Miami spice and we were blown away! Everything was amazing! My tasty cocktail Ohigan! Delish. Love the dried pineapple!
Now let me tell you about the Bento box! Did not skimp on food or portions. Super delish and well with $39.

I don’t know why this place isn’t busier. It is beyond delish. Will have to hit this one more time for spice before the end of the month! Whose with me!

Service was slow, the kitchen got backed up, and the restaurant wasn’t that busy. Food was not great tasting and the price was high. There was an alarm going off periodically and honestly ruined the experience. We were surprised to find that they automatically added a 18% gratuity for a party of 2 because “that is the house policy”. Would not recommend this place.

We went for Miami spice lunch but then decided to order off the menu and share.
Nowhere on the menu nor next to each item does it mention if its fried or not.We do not like fried food.
We had the Wagu tacos, I thought it would be tiny pieces of Wagu not chopped up burger meat , that was disappointing.The taco itself was fried .The meat was not that tasty.
We ordered a cooked salmon roll which also came fried on the outside unfortunately. It had cream cheese
and some other fillings, the flavor was really good.
Our final dish was duck dumplings.It was again minced filling and there was no flavor of duck.It could have been whatever filling for all I know.Disappointing!
The decor is fun, daggers hanging on the walls.The waiter was extremely attentive.

Service was the worst I have had in a restaurant despite it was 50% empty. Called the manager and complained strongly.
Service has been deteriorating in the last few times we ate at Tanuki.
We are considering not coming back.

This place was wonderful. I wish I could remember our servers name because he was perfect. He didn’t hover over us but was available when we needed him. The food was amazing. We choice off their Miami Soice menu, and had simple bento boxes but everything in them was wonderful on its own and paired with the other foods. I had a ribeye/nigiri bento and the ribeye was perfectly cooked with so much flavor. And my boyfriend had spicy chicken/shashimi and it was the right amount of spice that didn’t kill the flavor but still had a kick. The fried rice had hints of wasabi as did the cauliflower. It was an overall great place for a dinner.

First time back since moving from Miami in 2017. Since I was hanging with a friend and I had to choose a restaurant, this was my first thought!! The food is still as delicious as when I first dined there when it originally opened. The service is spot on!! Tanuki never disappoints.

It was an amazing experience and the food was outstanding . Welcoming us with a cocktail of choice to unlimited mimosas then followed by some dim sum which was mouth watering . The dim sum was made individually with fresh ingredients, I’m chinese and never had I ate a chicken sui Mai with truffle ! It was mind blowing . We were there for fathers days and felt it was definitely worth a drive through the pouring rain of lovely Miami.

Some of the menu items were to die for, but some (like warm mushroom salad ) below average. The restaurant was out of many items. Service was pretty good, fish was fresh.

They didn’t have half items from the menu, server was rushing us to order cocktails and food. And then all the time we ordered something, he would tell us they out of that item or he would have to check with the kitchen.
Arrogant manager was walking around like he was extremely busy.., while it was 2 tables occupied at the restaurant. And him and the hostess definitely didn’t have time to say goodbye when we were leaving, while they were chatting by the exit door.

The Happy Hour prices were excellent and we didn't like there was a manipulation of size or quality in order to make the lower prices happen. We will definitely be back when in the FL area again.
